The lease on my current car (2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback) will be up in June 2017. I stood in line to put my M3 deposit down on 3/31. I'm on the east coast. I figure I will have anywhere between 6-12+ months from the time my current lease ends until I take delivery of a Model 3. I put very few miles on my cars (approx. 5-6k/year).
I would like to buy something fun and pre-owned that I could, at least in theory, sell for about the same price as I buy it for after 6-12 months of ownership. What would you buy for say $20-25k cash? Could swing the budget in either direction but like the idea of being frugal during this "interim" period while I wait for my M3.
My initial thoughts...
volvo v60 wagon?
